Longtime fall fan favorite Wurstfest is back in New Braunfels for its 60th year celebrating German culture and food.

This year’s festival marks the first in the grounds’ new Marktplatz building, the original having been destroyed in a fire days after the 2019 gathering.

Just like before, spend the day — or if you choose to make it all ten, we understand — listening to live music while sampling the Bavarian cuisine and plentiful bier that makes Wurstfest, well, Wurstfest.

Stop by the carnival or play minigolf if you need a break between all the sausage and suds.

Starting Nov. 1, you can even donate and customize your own brick to be placed in the new Marktplatz building next year. The funds go to more than 20 area nonprofits.

Tickets for the festival are available online and in person, so whether you’ve been waiting since the last fest or decide to go day-of, you’ll be ready to party New Braunfels style.

$18-$20, Friday, Nov. 5-Sunday, Nov. 14, 120 Landa St., New Braunfels, (830) 625-9167,
